James Walker – Great deceiver

All this moving around
Sure ain’t good for your health
Driving sunrise to sundown
Does it ever feel like you’re running from yourself?

Now we’re eating up the miles
But Lord, who are we trying to fool?
Don’t it ever feel like you might not ever
be who you had set out to?

But baby I’m the great deceiver
Big blue eyes in the mirror
Gotta get on and keep hacking through these days
Maybe I will be forgiven
For all the mess I’m making
But my head just keeps on spinning
Through the haze
Of all these nights

With all these wishes you make,
Can they buy you something true?
Because your friendships are fake
There’s no-one who would date
A man who’s never there for you

So chew me up and spit me out
Build me up to tear me down
I guess I’ll get what I deserve
But being here, it just won’t fix
All the things I know I’ve missed
And sure as hell won’t feel like home

Baby I’m in the great deceiver
Big blue eyes in the mirror
Gotta get on, and keep booking in these shows
Maybe I will be forgiven
For all the shit I’m saying
But my head just keeps on spinning
From all the promises I’m breaking
And from the rent I just can’t make and
I swear I’ve made a mistake and
I swear I can’t keep living this way
Hell I swear I just can’t live this way
